Join Us for a Workshop to Build Your Own Bike Trailer
Retro City Cycles will be hosting an S-Cargo trailer-building workshop on Saturday, October 16, beginning at noon.
This is a great opportunity to build your own trailer with the support and assistance of bike mechanics and people who have already built these trailers.
The Wike DIY Cargo Kit contains:
- Two 20″ alloy rims and hubs with precision bearings
- Two 20″ tires and tubes
- Towing bar to bicycle
- Six connectors for 1″ square tube
- Two axles plated 4130 with pushbutton release
- One flexible trailer hitch
- One bicycle hitch
Your order through Retro will include the kit above, plus the square wall tubing and the self-tapping screws (we will gather those additional parts locally).
You can choose your trailer size (Prices include everything but decking):
24 x 36 = $230
24 x 48 = $245
You can bring your own decking material, add it later (the trailer can be pulled without the decking on it) or we can supply plywood decking for you (price for that has not been determined).
You may also want to build a crib or install other fastener hardware to support tie-downs. You provide those materials… you can do that during the workshop or later.
If you have questions, please feel free to leave them in the comments! One of our trailer-builders will respond.
Please RSVP and place your order by 10/6 so we can ensure all the kits arrive in time.
